NTI Ltd announces Burrumbuttock Hay Runners sponsorship for fourth consecutive year
NTI Ltd, Australia’s specialist transport and logistics insurer, are proud to announce their primary sponsorship of the Burrumbuttock Hay Runners on their journey to Armidale on 23rd January – 26th January 2020.
The partnership with NTI and the Burrumbuttock Hay Runners follows on from the last four years of ongoing support of the initiative.
Founded by Brendan ‘Bumpa’ Farrell in 2014, the Burrumbuttock Hay Runners helps the farming industry by transporting and providing essential resources to drought stricken farmers, across regional New South Wales and Queensland.
The recent bushfire crisis across Australia has made the importance of the run even more prominent. The Burrumbuttock Hay Runners became one of the early responders, acting quickly to pull together a team of volunteers and delivered much needed hay out to farmers in Corryong that were impacted by the fires.
“The team at NTI extend our sincere thanks and would like to congratulate the Burrumbuttock Hay Runners for their quick actions to aid bushfire stricken communities.
“Our relationship with the Hay Runners is one of genuine admiration and heartfelt support. This year we are filled with more pride than ever to have Brendan Farrell and the Burrumbuttock Hay Runners as one of our long-standing partners.
“It’s important for NTI to be able to give back to hardworking Australians who dedicate their lives to sustaining agriculture in our unforgiving climate, and support the volunteers who donate their time and resources,” said NTI CEO, Tony Clark.
Burrumbuttock Hay Runners founder Brendan ‘Bumpa’ Farrell expressed his gratitude to have NTI on-board as a Primary Sponsor for the fourth consecutive year.
“We are really happy to have NTI on-board for the fourth time.
“It’s great to have a corporate partner who has supported us for such a long time. The drought is only getting worse and it’s time for as many people as possible to just get on it and help out,” he said.
